News: Johan Santana

After having his 2nd rehab start already pushed back a day due to discomfort in his surgically repaired shoulder, the Mets have announced that Johan Santana will now be scratched from his start on Thursday and head back to New York to have his shoulder re-examined.

Analysis: Brace yourself fans for the worst. This does not sounds good at all. Keep in mind, it took Chien-Ming Wang over 15 months to recover from the same exact injury, so I guess you could assume that Santana was ahead of schedule. Either way, it is safe to say that we will not see Santana on the Citi Field mound in 2011. Let's just hope he is ready for the start of 2012.
